THE
BALLOON MAN

He always comes on market days,
               And holds balloons - a lovely bunch
And in the market square he stays,
             And never seems to think of lunch.

They're red and purple, blue and green,
And when it is a sunny day
Tho' carts and people get between
       You see them shining far away.

And some are big and some are small,
All tied together with a string,
And if there is a wind at all
They tug and tug like anything.
 
Some day perhaps he'll let them go
         And we shall see them sailing high,
And stand and watch them from below
     They would look pretty in the sky!

This little poem was written by a lady called Rose (Amy) Fyleman

Although she wrote, edited, or translated more than fifty books for children, Rose Fyleman is remembered primarily for her poems about fairies. For several decades she was known as the "accredited poet of fairies," but her publications extended far beyond poetry and far beyond fairies. She also wrote fiction--both fantasy and realistic--plays, information books, and opera librettos.

Born in 1877 in Nottingham, England, Rose Amy Fyleman began writing as a young girl, functioning as the "poet laureate" of her family, not, she recalled in 1940, "that any particular fuss was made of my accomplishments." Still, on holidays and birthdays she "was expected to produce some sort of rhymed tribute of the event." Most of those early efforts have not survived, and, indeed, Fyleman's interest in writing was only occasional and recreational for approximately forty years.

After her early schooling she studied at the University College in Nottingham where she was, by her own admission, a rather undistinguished student.
She was born on March 6, 1877 and died on August 1, 1957

It is the first time I have found them and I have definitely bookmarked them in case I need their help again.
